Ultra Rare Trax Vol 4

Live Nirvana Bootography Rating:

Live Nirvana Bootography Review:
Tracks 1 Ė 9 are from the Rio Studio Session and are sourced from the mp3ís. Most between song noises have been edited out like the false start of Heart-Shaped Box and the studio noise before Scentless Apprentice that is present on other bootlegs like 1987-1993 (The Ultimate Ö). The Other Improv has the skipped part in the middle cut out, but I like this track much more than the Lights out version, because thereís nearly no hiss.
All in all very nice tracks and, except the bootleg The Sessions I havenít seen another bootleg containing the whole session.
Tracks 10 - 12 are from the Music source 89 session and are sourced from a cassette that has pretty much high end. They contain all banter and noises between the Tracks, all false starts, everything. Tracks 13 Ė 19 are from the Music source 91 session and are sourced from the old ANA(1). Aneurysm cuts in, Even In His Youth fades in and the tape runs very fast. The drums is overdriven and the songs do not sound very good. Bootlegs like 1987 Ė 1993 (The Ultimate Ö) also contain this session from the analog tape, but they have been remastered and sound much more enjoyable. This is an unremastered poor copy! Very bad!

Track 20 has never been released before. Itís from the 1987 practice session and sounds very good and funny. I think itís sourced from AUD #1b as itís 100% complete.
All in all this is a pretty good bootleg. It should get an A grade as it contains things others do not.
All other bootlegs of this label (Ultra Rare Trax Vol 1,2,3) just have ripped things from Outcesticides and other bootlegs. This one presents just unreleased Tracks and some of them are very rare and are not contained on any other bootlegs. The Artwork is beautiful on this bootleg and every Track has notes that are very well informed about it.
